Snowdrops are one of the first signs of spring, usually making an appearance in January. They remind us that winter is almost over. Also sometimes referred to Flower of Hope. Snowdrops can be seen all across the U.K, using found in woodlands and along riverbanks. 

The technique of botanical monoprinting is a slow process, requiring all plants to be pressed for a few weeks prior to printmaking. Each piece is carefully curated by using individual plants, making your artwork totally unique. The plant is inked up evenly and then put through the etching press with my chosen paper, where it presses the plant into the paper leaving an intricate copy of the delicate details.  

This process allows me to slow down, by going on regular foraging walks I can connect with my surroundings. I hope this piece allows you to feel closer to nature and appreciate the smaller details within the world of botany.  

Your print will come with a biodegradable sleeve, backing board and a thoughtful thank you note, all carefully packaged in tissue paper and wrapping paper to ensure its safe arrival.
